New Series of Taskmaster?

I wonder if that will mean a bigger budget and therefore bigger name contestants?

Well you'd certainly hope it'll give them a bigger budget. Doubt they'll mess with it too much though, I mean channel 4 didn't mess with the Bake Off format when they got that, and they seem to be doing ok with it. They are buying it for a reason, the show works as it is.

Yes, this is probably the most promising thing, the Bake Off precedent. The show absolutely does not need anything more pumped into it though. It doesn't need any "bigger names" trying to steal the show, dominating. The current format genuinely is perfect as it is. No "reality stars" from the Channel 4 catagloue, no intertextual promotion.

 

It's definitely a show which it finely poised in how good it it. Wouldn't take much for the whole thing to be ruined.

100%. You'd like to hope given how involved with it Horne has been, he'd draw the line at people dicking about with it – it is, primarily, a comedy programme.

It'd kill it completely if they threw a tonne of tossers from reality telly in.

I've read a few comments about Avalon being very defensive with their TV formats, so Channel 4 having much of a say in changing will be limited at best, I hope anyway!

 

So many things are crucial to it's success. The house, the presenters, even the layout of the studio. It needs to remain untouched and the chance for us to see established and emerging talent. Some will be better then others, of course, and Series 7 is it's undoubted peak, so hopefully Avalon haven't been drawn in by the lure of £££.

If Channel 4 ruin Taskmaster I will make it my life's work to shut them down.

Agree with all of the above! You'd like to think c4 see how popular it is on Dave (the most popular at that!) so they see how it works well and no need to tamper with it. 

 

There's plenty of stars that could go on it without them being reality TV stars. As mentioned above I think Alex Horne would know who works well and they've avoided reality TV people up to now so don't see why they'd start going for them :)

 

Already intrigued to see who's on series 10 and the current series hasn't even finished lol

This is great news for me, can't get the uktvplay catch up in my bedroom so if I miss an episode it's harder for me to catch up. 

 

Not anymore though 🤣

Also this series has been great, the last one (S8) was the worst by a stretch for me and the one I wasn't bothered about missing or catching up with had I missed an ep.

 

I actually didn't mind series 6 to be honest, but that might have just been because of Alice Levine.

I've not been a huge fan of this one honestly, I do feel the quality has shifted when they've gone to 10 episodes does feel a bit too much. The first couple are gold and leave you wanting more, whereas this one i wouldnt mind it finishing now. Be interesting in the move to channel 4 would size down the episodes a bit.

That 7-task task today was superb. 

I think it went under appreciated that David launched them into a hedge and then got them all back. I'm surprised by how incompetent he's been on in though generally haha, makes Frank Skinner look great in comparison.

Dave got pummelled on Twitter with questions after the series ended about how it didn't advertise series 10... 

This was their responselol

Was pleased with who won but they were all likeable and it made for a great series, I thought s7 was a bit of a let down and that was partly because Jessica Knappet and Kerry Godliman were unbearable. Didn't get the fuss about that run.
